Positive signs


3 positive signs from today:
1) Bleary eyed before coffee, sitting at my computer ; I looked up and took down copy of Writing down the bones by Natalie Goldberg ( that I have had for a long time but haven't read.) I don't remember what prompted me to do that. I was going to look at the 1st chapter: Beginner's Mind, Pen and Paper when I flipped back a couple of pages to the Introduction that I was going to skip and read this: This book is about writing. It is also about using writing as your practice, as a way to help you penetrate your life and become sane. I will take this as a sign to keep on blogging.
2) Saw one of those baby snapping turtles crossing the road/a lady had stopped her car and was helping it get across safely - her license plate: Love 101. My son was in the car with me; he was talking about the Live 8 concert and was telling me how Will Smith had snapped his fingers every 3 seconds and told the audience that every 3 seconds a child dies in Africa. Maybe the Hippie movement is not dead.
3) Found a really nice 2 book set of Year in Provence and Toujours Provence in book shack at the dump.I had just put Year in Provence on my list of books to read this morning after Jeanette recommended it in her book meme.
All in all it was a nice Sunday morning.

Thanks! I had thought of leaving a link to this post on yr. post of yesterday since you invited positive posts but alas I don't know how. Still pretty blog illiterate.

If I ever see you, I'll show you how to do it.
